Ebook Spotlight: Maria Murnane’s Perfect on Paper

If you’re a fan of ‘chick lit’ and have yet to hear of Maria Murnane, you soon will. Her novel, Perfect on Paper, was selected from among more than 10,000 entries to be published by Amazon’s in-house imprint, Amazon Encore.

PopSugar Daily has christened Waverly Bryson, Murnane’s heroine, “the new Bridget Jones“, and since its publication, the novel has earned an average star rating of 4.5/5 across more than 210 reviews. Here’s a brief description from Amazon:

Anything can look perfect on paper. When her fiancé calls off their wedding at the last minute, Waverly Bryson wonders if her life will ever turn out the way she thought it would…or should. Her high-powered job in sports PR? Not so perfect. Her relationship with her dad? Far from it. Her perfect marriage? Enough said. To keep sane, Waverly makes a habit of jotting down “Honey Notes,” her own brand of self-deprecating wisdom and a pipe-dream for a line of greeting cards.

As Waverly stumbles back into the dating scene (no stalkers or jean shorts, please), her personal and professional lives threaten to collide. Perfect on Paper reminds us that everyone has a bad date (or twelve), and that everyone eventually needs a best friend to tell them, “Honey, you are not alone.”

Amazon Vine Voice and Top 1000 reviewer Cherise Everhard says:

This is probably one of the best books I have read all year. I laughed so hard, so loud and so many times throughout this book and when I wasn’t laughing, I was smiling. Waverly is easy to identify with and the friends she surrounds herself with are as unforgettable and just as loveable as she is herself.

Waverly is not without flaws or faults and the reader gets to see her make mistakes, get laughed at, laugh at herself, learn and grow… All the while the author makes sure you don’t want to set the book down, ever. The dates she goes out on are hilariously horrifying and unfortunately some are hauntingly familiar. Ladies, I challenge you not to find at least one of your former dates in this book.

This book is everything I love about chick lit and more. I am looking forward to reading more from this author; she has made a new fan!

Fortunately for Cherise and anyone else who’d like to see more of Waverly, her adventures in continue in Murnane’s It’s A Waverly Life.
